Great question.

There is no set fee for services in the Real Estate business. All commissions are negotiable between the Seller and the Broker.

One can find flat-fee brokers who will list a property for a very low flat fee, but offer few services. Experienced home sellers often find that they they are comfortable handling many of the aspects of a sale themselves and choose a broker who will work for a substantially reduced fee.

Other companies - like mine - are full-service and charge much higher fees. For home sellers who are not comfortable with many of the complicated and time-consuming aspects of a real estate transaction, a full-service brokerage tends to be their choice.

Good luck in your sale!

Great question. If your interpretation of the tax credit is accurate (talk to your accountant to determine your specific eligibility), the dollar amount which will be used to determine your profit (or loss) will be the NET proceeds from the sale: sales price minus all fees, commissions, tax prorations, etc.

Using your outline above, a $170k sale with $10k in fees results in a $160k net.

Hope that helps!
